Money-Saving Tips when Moving Office
Moving office can be an expensive financial outlay. In today’s economic climate, companies are looking to extract every ounce of value from everything they do, and this is certainly true for an office move.
Having a realistic and clear moving office budget from the outset is essential to ensure you keep a close eye on moving office costs and ensure that you don't go over budget.
Here’s our top 5 money-saving tips to stretch out your moving office budget and make every penny work for to acheive a smooth & successful office relocation.
1. Work with Experts
You might be thinking of saving costs by not engaging the expertise of office relocation services (Property Consultant, Property Solicitor, Office Design Company, IT & Telecoms Company, Office Removals). Whilst there is the initial cost outlay of their professional fees, their advice and support can actually save you money in the long term. Furthermore, they provide operational & strategic assistance throughout your moving office project to ensure your office move happens on time, to budget and with the minimum hassle & disruption to your business.
2. Choice of Office Space
Probably one of the most expensive business assets your company has; so chose carefully! Define your office space requirements with our handy office space calculator to work out how much office space you actually need. Having surplus office space that you don’t use (now or in the future) will considerably increase your moving office costs.
The same applies to your office furniture, files and any old IT equipment you no longer use. Taking this with you when you move office when you no longer have a use for it will only add to yet more square footage in your office that will cost you money. Archive old files & documents, recycle redundant IT equipment and donate any old office furniture.
4. Review & Evaluation
Companies should use an office move as an opportunity to review all of their suppliers, service contracts & systems to ensure cost-effective efficiency. This includes utility companies, business phone systems, telecom vendors and office stationery.
5. Time = Money!
It's true what they say that "time = money" and this is certainly true for an office move. Thankfully you can keep your office move on track with the free Moving Office Checklist and Moving Office Timetable. An office move that drags on and on will only add to the cost. More importantly, you will want to be up and running quickly on the first day in your new office so as to avoid any business downtime or disruption.
